  • Ideas for funding my sport skill optimisation PhD

    I am currently applying to do a PhD at Portsmouth University UK. The
    subject is an idea of my own - computational optimisation of sport skills.
    I have done some proof of concept work which can be seen, along with more
    info on my idea, at:

    Can anyone think of any sources of funding to help me with course fees,
    travel expenses, and other costs? Everywhere I look seems to have criteria
    that for one reason or another exclude me (for example student loans aren't
    available for PhD and I don't think my credit rating is healthy enough for a
    Professional and Career Development Loan). I'm struggling to find funding
    that includes sport in its remit. I was thinking of the research councils
    but I cannot see how it would fit into any of their prorities.

    Thanks for any help you can give.
